You will travel along the South Coast and see some of the stunning sights which make this stretch of land so popular with both visitors and locals alike, such as the waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, the glaciers Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull, the rock arch of Dyrhólaey, and Reynisfjara black sand beach.

Once at the lagoon, you will be able to watch the icebergs on their journey towards the Atlantic Ocean before the excitement starts. At dusk, the firework display will commence, and the sky will be lit up in an amazing display of colour.
